It is 8:38 a.m., sky is blue at 22.9 degrees, wind out of the west (where else) at 13 knots; Patrick is curled up on his afghan in front of the space heater and Junior is at Will's. It is 65 degrees and partly cloudy in Clearwater.

Junior and I continued to search for properties in the Clearwater Area yesterday. Not a whole lot in our price range. We may end up in a tent under an over pass...

Patrick and a few of his pals....

It is 8:46 a.m. and 31.1 degrees F. Very Windy. Patrick and Junior are asleep in his bedroom.(Clearwater, Fla.: 65 degrees and clear) Miami just loses to Cal last night in bowl game. More later.

From the Gainesville Sun:

Addazio named UF offensive coordinator

Published: Saturday, December 27, 2008 at 7:08 p.m.

" ...Meyer decided the best candidate was right here at home, naming Gators’ offensive line coach Steve Addazio as his new coordinator Saturday...

"...Billy Gonzales, Kenny Carter and John Hevesy will continue to be involved in the offensive game planning and playcalling as they have all year.”

Addazio takes over the role of Dan Mullen, the new head coach at Mississippi State who served as Meyer’s offensive coordinator in Meyer’s four seasons at UF. Mullen returned to Gainesville after Christmas and will be the Gators’ offensive coordinator for the BCS Championship Game against Oklahoma.

Addazio, a former offensive coordinator at Indiana, has worked with Meyer for six seasons, four at UF and two at Notre Dame, where the two were assistant coaches.

Here is my transcript of Florida Quarterback Tim Tebow's Promise at the end of the post-game news conference after the Gators' one-point loss at home to Mississippi, Saturday, Sept. 27, 2008:

"To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation:

I'm sorry--extremely sorry. You know we were hoping for an undefeated season, that was my goal--something Florida's never done here.

But I promise you one thing: A lot of good will come out of this.

You have never seen any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season.

And you will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season, and

You'll never See a team play harder than we will the rest of the season.

God Bless."

--Tim Tebow

The Gators then won the rest of their regular season games, and the Southeastern Conference Championship against the No. 1 ranked team in the nation, with a new AP No. 1 ranking, and earned a berth in the BCS National Championship game:






South Carolina..56-6

The Citadel.......70-19

Florida State....45-15


See you in Miami!!!

SEC Game Speaking Points

Florida vs. Alabama Speaking Points


• Florida claimed its eighth SEC Championship (1991, ’93, ’94, ’95, ’96, ’00, ’06, ’08). It was Florida’s seventh win in the SEC Championship Game.

• Florida’s seven championship games victories is the most in SEC history.

• Florida has now won 12-or-more games for the fourth time in school history (1995, ’96, ’06, ’08).

• Urban Meyer is the third coach in the history of college football to lead a school that was ranked No. 2 (AP) to a win over the No. 1 (AP) team more than once in his coaching career (Joe Paterno, Penn State; Jimmy Johnson, Miami).

• Alabama had never trailed in the second half this season until that streak ended after the Gators blanked the Tide in the fourth quarter, 14-0.


• Against the No. 1 defense on third down, UF was 7-of-13 vs. Alabama on third downs. Tim Tebow completed four third down passes, three of them for touchdowns and ran the ball four times on third down, and converted three for first downs.

• With its first touchdown of the game, Florida set a school record for points in a season. UF entered the game with 556 and the previous school record was 559 in 1996. UF has scored 587 points in 2008.

• Alabama had given up 28 points total in its last four games before allowing 31 to Florida


• Florida had a season-high eight quarterback hurries vs. Alabama.

• UF tied a school record with its 24th interception of the season (the 2000 team also had 24 picks).

Special Teams

• Jonathan Phillips set a SEC single-season record with 75 PATs on the season. UF players own each of the top five marks in the department in SEC history.

• Chas Henry’s 57-yard punt at the start of the second half was his 13th of 50-or-more this year and his 20th inside the 20-yard line. Henry had 12 punts of 50-or-more yards last season.

• Florida’s Brandon James had five kickoff returns for 121 yards today, breaking the SEC single-game record for kickoff return yards.

• Florida’s Chas Henry punted three times for a 47.7 yard average, breaking the previous single-game average mark of 45.8 yards (4 punts) set by Georgia’s Gordon Ely-Kelso in the 2005 contest.



It is 10:09 a.m. 61 degrees F. here in the Wabash River Valley. Patrick and Junior are asleep up here. [68 DEGREES F. IN CLEARWATER.]

What's on the blackboard:

Two Things you'll NEVER hear us say:

1. You can't feed that to a dog.
2. Duct tape won't fix that.

Junior made us Christmas Taco Salad yesterday, yum!!

It is 7:51 a.m. and 30.2 degrees with a freezing rain advisory. It is 68.2 degrees in Clearwater, Fla., partly cloudy.-- Junior and Patrick are asleep in his room.

Junior pulled a huge tree limb down with the Jeep yesterday, It was broken off and poised to possibly fall on the house. That was fun. We have tons of lumber in the yard. Much damage to trees. The weight of thick ice broke off many branches. Much clean up work to do. Trees look like they were in a war zome. Speaking of war zones, I think we just experienced a sonic boom that really shook the house... What the...? Junior, Patrick and I are halfway thru our Holiday James Bond Marathon, having added three yesterday. We are now into Roger Moore--

Not a sonic boom, thunder, and it just shut the computer down, now we have lightening and more thunder, I don't know what's going on, maybe the end of the world?

Our forecast:

Cloudy. Freezing rain likely with isolated thunderstorms in the morning...then chance of rain showers in the afternoon. Areas of fog in the afternoon. Light ice accumulation possible. Highs in the upper 40s. South winds 15 to 20 mph. Chance of precipitation 70 percent.

Junior fired up Google Earth last night and we looked at two of my old houses in Clearwater--It is really neat to be able to see houses you grew up in on the net!!! WE will hook up with a real estate agent on our way back from the Gator Game...

More later.

OK. Everybody knows what Oklahoma's offense has done this season, rolling over opponents to earn a berth in the national championship game on Jan. 8 against Florida.

The top-ranked Sooners' 62-21 win against Missouri for the Big 12 title marked the fifth straight game in which Oklahoma scored more than 60 points, something last accomplished in college football in 1919. Oklahoma (12-1) leads the nation with an average of 54 points a game, the most since the 1944 Army team scored 56 points per contest. The Sooners also became the first team to score 700 points in a season in 104 years and sports Heisman Trophy quarterback Sam Bradford.

But it begs to ask, could the Sooners have scored 60 points in five straight games in the physically demanding Southeastern Conference where even the worst defense is at least statistically better than some of the best in the Big 12?

"It would have been hard because the teams in this league can play defense," Florida defensive coordinator Charlie Strong said.

But could they have done it?

"It would have been hard," Strong responded twice to the same question, with only a smile as the hint to how he really feels.

If you're a Sooners fan, here's the scary numbers:

Eleven of 12 teams in the SEC rank in the top 38 nationally in total defense, including five of the top 15 (Florida is No. 9).

Texas is the top defense in the Big 12, ranking 50th nationally. Oklahoma is the next Big 12 defense on the national rankings at No. 65.

"They haven't played against us.. .. Nobody puts 60 points up on us," declared Florida defensive back Joe Haden.

Florida (12-1) has given up an average of 12.8 points per game this season. Oklahoma's defense leads the nation in turnover margin (plus-23), just ahead of No. 2 Florida (plus-22).

The Gators' players took it personal when Bradford beat out Tim Tebow for the Heisman Trophy. Text messages flew into Tebow's phone just minutes after he failed to win the award for the second year in a row. He isn't telling what those messages said. But others aren't as bashful.

Many of those came from Florida defense players. And their implication was simple: "We'll take care of this on Jan. 8."

Florida has quietly snarled that comparing Tebow's stats to Bradford's wasn't right. The Gators say that SEC teams play defense unlike anything Big 12 teams have seen this year.

"It's a challenge for them to come against us, honestly, because they haven't seen a defense like us," Haden said. "With the speed and the physical play and just knowing our assignments and just flying around. They probably played some good defenses, but our defense is definitely one of the top."

And, forget about all those fancy numbers, Haden said. Forget about predicting a 100-98 football game in Miami. He wants blood, guts and spit to determine the winner, not flash and dash.

"Whichever defense is going to step up, that's who most likely is going to come out on top," Haden promised.

Florida coach Urban Meyer said Oklahoma's tempo could require a major adjustment, running off plays quickly before defenses get a chance to substitute.

How do you combat such a talented offense? It's really pretty simple, Strong said.

"It's going to be a case of where we've got to get off the field," Strong said. "We can't allow them to just move the ball, which we haven't done all year. We've got to get off the field. We've got to get them on first down, second down and third down and just get off the field."

But Strong isn't selling Oklahoma short. Not at all.

"It's as good an offense as we've faced," he said. "They have put up good numbers. You look at the last five games, 60-plus points and then the game before that is 58. So it's going to be a good challenge for us.. .. You hope it never happens to you, so we'll see what happens."

Having a month to prepare helps. By game time, Florida's coaches and players will have seen virtually every Sooner offensive play a dozen or more times.

"I don't think anyone has ever scored 60 (against teams he coached) but there have been some times when they were getting close," joked secondary coach Chuck Heater. "That's why I've been fired so many times. It would be an awful Saturday, or in this case Thursday or whatever day it is. But they are obviously doing it to a lot of good teams.

"You've got to out-execute them. There are times where they are going to know where you are and you've got to cover them and get in your gaps. You've got to out-execute them ultimately. You've got to tackle them.. .. Most bad days on defense are the result of bad tackling. We've got to tackle well, that's for sure."

The speed at which Oklahoma attacks is a concern to Heater. The Sooners also caused another interesting issue. The way their games are taped by their video crews, it's hard for opponents to get a good read on where and how they attack from.

"Their video guy does a good job of cutting it off so you can't see it very good so you've got to go to TV copy," Heater said. "On TV copy you can really see the pace of it and how they gain advantages and how they snap the ball. So TV copy is really a better way of getting the feel for the pace of it."

Defensive line coach Dan McCarney was the head coach at Iowa State 1995-2006. So he's familiar with the Big 12. He feels the defenses aren't that bad. It's just that the offenses are awfully good. He was a victim to a humbling by Nebraska while in that league.

The '95 team that beat Florida 62-24 humbled his own club during the regular season, so he knows not to take the Big 12 offenses lightly.

"They may have tagged us for 70," McCarney said.

How does such a beating feeling like?

"Demoralizing, depressing," he said. "You feel like you've never coached a day in your life. And your heart goes out to the kids. Helpless is right. Your heart goes out to the kids because you know how hard they work."

Asked if he almost jumped out on the field in the middle of that 70-point game to tackle a Cornhusker racing for another touchdown, McCarney joked: "I think I did. I still have a dislocated finger because I tried to tackle somebody. Nobody on my team would."

Strong, McCarney and the rest of the staff won't suit up on Jan. 8. But they have heard all the talk about the incredible string of 60 points Oklahoma has going. The players at UF vow it won't happen this time.

But it is a scary thought. What if the Gators relive the nightmare of 1995 at the Fiesta Bowl, when Nebraska blew UF out of Sun Devil Stadium?

Strong, at the time an assistant at Notre Dame, watched the game on TV and confesses the Gators lost to an awfully good offense.

"I think that what happened, too, it was just the preparation," Strong said. "I don't think Florida was ready to play and then Nebraska came out and played so well. They were just ticking and that night they played very well. You just hope it never happens to you."

Went geocaching with Skyman 329 and Stinky-dog yesterday, visited two of my catches, repaired another and found two new ones in woods in a State Forest. Temp was around 38 degrees, slight breeze, only slight snowcover on the ground, so it was OK conditions. Found both caches easily. Nice little hike in the woods. Patrick enjoyed plowing through snowdrifts!

Had a nice lunch at the new Cafe in Lagro, talked to Curly about early Lagro History ( We knew more than he did).Will upload geocaching in Indiana photos later.

BACK TO 2008:

Things are basically back to normal. Always fun to do bubble-gum plumbing on Christmas Eve.

Congrats to Charlie Weiss for a great game for the Irish in their bowl game!

Merry Christmas from the Wabash River Valley to everybody!!

We vow this greeting will be sent from Clearwater Beach next year, God-Willing!!

The Birth Of Jesus

In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.

While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom his favour rests."

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.

The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.

Luke 2: 1 - 20 New International Version.

Big snow storm, with snow freezing rain and all that crap blowing thru today, then it warms up apparently. Kitchen still frozen.

All this crap has to go. I'm bailing out.

Go Gators! Beat Sooners!!
